    Hi to all members,

    Just a quick update on the recent spam we have experienced on the forum,

    I have banned and removed the spam and for the short term made the forum, admin approval only for new members until I find a more permanent solution over the next few days.

    Sorry for any inconvenience I trust this meets with everybody's approval.

    Andy - Forum Admin

    good luck Andy, I am no expert but would having that setting that requires you to check the photos with the car in the photos to prove you are not a robot work to solve this problem

    Thanks for ending the spam problem.

    Might want to consider nominating someone to temporarily assist when you are not around.

    Thanks Macca, I was reluctant to open anything or to try and post in case these spam posts were carrying viruses. Glad to see the forum up and running again.

    Thanks for all the work Andy.
    I don't see a problem with some type of approval process for new members.
    Also think a few moderators to help would be a good idea.

    I too appreciate and thank you for your efforts. I do note, however, that this forum is said to be run and maintained by http://motorforums.co.uk - and a visit to that site will show that their own front page "Noticeboard" contains 3 spam posts dating from August 2017 :confused: - not the best advertisement for their maintenance capabilities?
